Unilever, stop animal testing!

Every day, some 2 billion people worldwide use Unilever products - which include Axe, Ben & Jerry's, Brut, Caress, Country Crock, Dove, Fair & Lovely, Hellman's, I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, Jif, Klondike, Knorr, Lever 2000, Lipton, Magnum, Neutragena, Nexxus, Noxema, Ponds, Popsicle, Q-Tips, St. Ives, Suave, Vaseline and more.

On its website, Unilever states it does not test on animals. However, it then goes on to say: "Occasionally, when there are no suitable non-animal approaches available, some of the ingredients we use have to be tested [on animals]; and some governments test our products on animals as part of their regulatory requirements."

If you test even one product on animals, that means that yes, you DO support animal testing!

The statement further explains: "We are actively working with these governments, other scientists and NGOs, to put in place alternative methods."

That statement was dated April 2015!

Unilever, it's time to set a definitive timeline with precise steps that will be taken to eliminate all animal testing within your company.

Update #42 years ago
A spokesperson for Unilever maintains the company does not animal test, and has not for 30 years. However, "the foods and chemicals assessment regulations throughout the world require that ingredients have to be tested on animals where either non-animal methods are not available or are not accepted by the relevant government authorities for assuring human health and environmental safety."

I have now made FOUR attempts to reach out to Unilever in regard to animal testing. No one will acknowledge the issue. I will still keep trying!

We've reached 25,000 signatures! It's time to let Unilever know we mean business.
